I had been meaning to watch “A Handmaid’s Tale” and started it two days ago.
Oh my god. I can’t tear myself away. I watched three episodes in a row, then a fourth in the middle of the night when I couldn’t sleep. Then another first thing in the morning. Then another to reward myself for getting a couple of annoying tasks completed. Then a couple more that evening…you get the idea. It has been roughly 48 hours and I have watched all of season 1 already.
The series strikes home for me in so many ways. I am from the Boston area so all those references engender nostalgia. The political message resonates - I won’t go into details because this is CS and I don’t mean this as a politically charged thread. And I love, love, love Elisabeth Moss as an actor.
Seriously, I don’t think I can stop until I’ve watched every episode available. (I’m also reading the various threads on this message board.) It’s like an addiction. I literally start weeping during some of the more emotional scenes.
Anyone else every been so gripped by a streaming show that you just can’t stop watching? I guess this is the modern version of the “un-put-downable” book.
